    Name reuse from this guy: Sentinel Maximus (2004) - Autobot Matrix Guardian / Armored Transport - www.tfu.info

    Imagine what the story could be. With Ultra Magnus missing, presumed dead, Sentinel takes the role of command of all Autobots and upgrades himself with a new powerful body. His first mission as supreme Autobot leader: Termination of Optimus Prime and his band of traitors.



    Basically it would be like when Grimlock became Autobot leader in the Marvel comics and hunted down the "traitors" Goldbug and Blaster.

    it would be interesting as a story arc but it would have to end with either Ultra Magnus coming back, Optimus taking over as the autobut supreme commander, and with Sentinel dying...maybe getting over his head and trying to go one on one with megatron and losing...

    Were Sentinel Maximus to be included, I'd rather him be a completely original character. Heck, given the characters history of sucking and losing, having him be killed by Megatron would be rather fitting.

    As much as an prick Sentinel can be,
    i don't see him going after Optimus's death.

    Sure, the premise sounds good.
    And who would we NOT want to be in charge of all Autobots?
    So that sounds appealing for a storyarc actually.

    Well it would be Sentinel Magnus and they I cant see then introducing a new character with 'Sentinel' in their name. Not to mention Sentinel is a jerk not a Decepticon he might be able to easily be tricked into hunting down and incarcerating Optimus and his crew I doubt he would exterminate them.

    I don't see Sentinel, jerk that he is, wanting Optimus dead. Apprehended/arrested perhaps, but not killed.

    That could change if Optimus and/or the other bots were wanted for murder though. Maybe someone frames Optimus for the (apparent) death of Ultra Magnus or another Elite Guard member, and Sentinel over-reacts as Sentinel is likely to do.

    Boy, this sounds familiar.
    Oh, yes i got it now.

    "With king richard missing in the crusades, presumed dead, prince john takes the crown and makes himself king.
    His first mission as supreme leader of britain: termination of robin hood and his merry men".

    Some stories just keep getting used again and again.

    Nonono.

    Ultra Magnus goes missing and Sentinel Prime is chosen by the Autobot Council of Elders (Season 3!) to take the role of leader, and becomes "Sentinel Maximus". The reason Ultra Magnus goes missing is due to the fact that Optimus Prime and his Autobots called for his assistance and he disappeared shortly thereafter, with no witnesses.

    So Sentinel Maximus decides he needs to bring in Optimus Prime and his Autobots for questioning, and because Sentinel thinks he's so smart, he figures out a way for Prime to be guilty and tries to go through with it before Ultra Magnus returns and Sentinel Maximus is downgraded ... to Sentinel Minor.

    :lolol
